Does Robert Pattinson paint on his abs?
Here's a question the world needs answered: Did Robert Pattinson (star of Twilight) have makeup artists use liquid body paint to make it appear as if he had six-pack abs for a scene in the forthcoming New Moon? Well, that's the rumor.

Given that it was for a scene in a movie, I think it would be more surprising if makeup wasn't used. But for chiselled abs it's actually more important to be really skinny than to workout a lot. And the guy looks like he's genuinely skinny.

It's good to see that being a human being is more important than being freakish...

Aren't spray-on abs the new "thing" for celebs?? But yeah, being ON screen...I couldn't imagine them not being touched up (or completey fabricated).

well, his acting ability is CERTAINLY faked . . . He couldn't convince me he was in pain if I disembowelled him myself.
